Through this ordeal, Kim says she has learned "that Eddie is filled with pain and truly afraid that I will leave him. I couldn't do that to him. I couldn't take his children away from him."
Oprah has some advice for Kim, and for all women who suffer from emotional abuse: "You have to be able to protect yourself before you can protect your children. This kind of pain, this kind of despair will eventually be projected onto your children. It's worth doing anything it takes to change that."
